  1. Hi, saddletramp. I don't look at this Avanti site every day, and therefore don't immediately see posts. I sent you a PM yesterday indicating I had sold the manual, and then posted that same information here. In my PM, I also indicated to you that the photo quality of today's reproduction Avanti shop manual and parts book was much better than what you have experienced in the early repro. About my Avanti parts book, the hopeful Avanti guy in the Czech Republic also bought that. I really think you'll be happy with the quality of the current reproduction Avanti books, if you're simply looking for good information and decent photos. Good luck on this! John
  2. From studequest above: "I am a fixer. I like the original equipment working." Yes, yes, yes, studequest. I'm also a fixer. Over the years, I found that if I don't fix the little issues as they arise, my collector car eventually becomes a rundown piece of crap (at least in my eyes). All a matter of personal preference, of course. John
  3. Sorry, Bill.....but this Avanti shop manual was sold to a car guy in the Czech Republic some time ago. He was anticipating the purchase of an Avanti, and wanted to get the shop manual in advance. John
  4. Thanks very much for the info and the ideas, guys. I will follow up on them. John
  5. Hi, Gang. I haven't kept up-to-date about which vendors are doing what, with regard to original or reproduction, first generation Avanti vinyl interior fabric. Thinking about correct "grain" and color match, of course. Thanks for any suggestions about where to look. John
  6. This is a "working" ORIGINAL Avanti Shop Manual. By that I mean a factory Avanti shop manual you can use, while actually doing stuff on your car. It's not a manual to display with your car at a show. You can use your mint manual or a repro for that! This original manual is reasonably clean throughout. It's NOT marred by greasy fingerprints throughout the interior pages. As you can see, there is some wear in the corners and leading edge of the front cover. This manual is 100% complete, with all pages secure. I like the original glossy paper, and the original photo quality of the genuine Studebaker Avanti Shop Manual. By the way, the covers and interior pages are white. My camera exposure seems a little off on the first four photos. The price is $35, plus U.S.P.S. media mail shipping. Thanks for looking. And, please also check out my posting for an original Avanti Parts Book I have for sale. John
